My little diesel wagon pulled the dory skiff just fine, here stopped for food in Eureka.

Since this event has been guys-only for a decade, the girls really got into their new masculine roles

The cove got quite crowded with boats as more folks showed up.

Saturday morning we found the first clue in the Treasure Hunt.

A strange sailing dory sails into the cove - who can it be?

It is a friend of mine from the Wooden Boat Forum. His Swampscott dory is a thing of beauty.

Harv lowers the colours.

We reluctantly pack out on Sunday. Ace check the sails as Harvey rows towards the launching area in his skiff.
